Anyone have this? What is the footage quality like? I have read some very good reviews on the film but some people say it's a bit too long and self indulgent. Seen plenty of clips on youtube so I know the music is all awesome.

Probably worth it for Bickford's stuff alone.

Easily one of my personal favorite films of all time. Never fails to:
a) Put a smile on my face
b) Make me laugh
c) Blow my fuckin' mind

It does kinda feel as though it drags on (my copy runs 2:44:10, definitely a commitment) with the several scenes of backstage shenanigans/editing room weirdness/moments on the road/Bruce Bickford ramblings; they just feel disconnected and out of place to me (which I kind of feel was part of 'the point')

But silly complaints aside, the film is an excellent document of the '77 Halloween concert, and I think some of Bozzio & Zappa's most accomplished performances lie within (and on video no less!).
